February 19, 2013

Sweetwater got its base-ball season off to a roaring start here Monday, crushing San Angelo Lake View 11-0 in six innings.

Ten different players ac-counted for their 12 hits and the 11 runs came from nine different players. Eight dif-ferent players had an RBI. The pitching held Lake View to one hit, a third-inning two-out single. The Mus-tangs were also errorless in the field.

No. 8 Lady Pirates conquer Sweetwater

February 18, 2013

POST — The good start needed for Sweetwater to stay with the No. 8-ranked girls team in Class 3A failed to materialize on Friday.
Instead, Lubbock Cooper jumped out to a 13-0 lead over the Lady Mustangs be-fore they could score, and the lead ballooned from there as the Lady Pirates beat Sweetwater, 74-37.
So the Lady Mustangs’ best season since 2005 — the last time they got to the playoffs — ends at 21-15.
Lubbock Cooper (30-4) will face Levelland — which upset No. 17 Wylie 42-37 in the nightcap of Friday’s playoff doubleheader — in the regional quarterfinals.

The girls, who earned a bye for winning the 13-A title, defeated Zephyr 48-29 in an area playoff at Clyde.
Highland (28-4) was led by Sierra Allen, who had 16 points, and Hannah Allen, who scored 11. With the win, the Lady Hornets will take on Water Valley in the regional quarterfinals this week. The time, date and location of the playoff was not known at press time.
